Authentic fresh caught fish, very rustic setting and amazing value.
beautiful interior design with plenty of interesting points and great brunch food make this a great place to start the day
A wonderful place for brunch with beautifully presented light, healthy Middle Eastern inspired flavours. Stand out dishes include ‘Fig, olive and fresh thyme pizza’, ‘Honey, soy and ginger glazed tofu’ and ‘Plum and blackberry tart’
Mama’s home cooking, not the most refined but great flavours with an array of classic Arabic and Mediterranean dishes – the fresh juices are a must!
Huge, super busy Turkish restaurant with great prices. Recommend - Iskander, Schwarma and have to keep room for the Kunafa and ice cream.
This tiny 30 seated restaurant is a hidden gem and a must try! Located in Jumeirah Fishing Harbour it offers modern Asian cuisine with a Japenese influence - think innovative, playful cooking in an unpretentious setting. The sushi will leave you want more and not forgetting the duck and corn waffles or black cod
The most amazing dish of braised pigeon stuffed with rice - crappy plastic chairs, cola from a can but what a sublime dish!
Some of the best tequila based drinks you’ll ever try, cracking tacos and amazing live music make this the perfect place for a fun night out with friends
Vol 1 - Roast Lab
A great rock’n’roll coffee shop – quality coffee, urban-lux design, clever lighting all set to a great play-list – reignited my love of coffee.
Habra Beef Canteen
A completely top to bottom genius restaurant. Food, design, service, music, detail – everything! Great BBQ dishes especially the Korean Beef Ribs with Kimchi, Miso glazed bone marrow and Black Beef Ribs with honey, cumin and siracha.
Some of the most well thought and presented food we’ve seen in a long time. A perfect place to start the day with breakfast dishes for everyone – oven roast egg pide, pain perdu, burrata with zaatar brioche and even avocado and poached eggs on toast are raised to new heights.
A Dubai institution. For the most authentic and affordable Pakistani food, expect back to basics approach so go casual and appreciate the simplicity
